Pretty in Pink

Do you have a favourite colour? Mine is pink and so I indulged myself whilst making this card for a friends birthday. I have used Milk Foundation card and embossed it with the Butterfly Dreams embossing folder and then I rubbed Blossom gilding wax all over the surface which enhanced the butterflies beautifully.

The wonderful piece of bling in the centre of the ribbon is a Pearl and Diamante charm from the Always and Forever collection, and does it sparkle! It is sooo pretty and needed to be in centre stage I felt. Married with a satin edged pink ribbon it sets the card off nicely.

Finally, I used a striplet underneath the bow and the sentiment and oval frame are from Justrite, items available on my website Maximumcrafts
